Cyprus 2018

Cyprus 2018

We had a great time in Cyprus on the Club Dance Holidays & Maggie G International Linedance holiday at the 4-star Athena Beach Hotel in Paphos. I am so proud to have had dancers from so many different countries: Austria, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Northern Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

The Athena Beach is a beautiful hotel right on the beach and the food, hotel service and facilities were amazing. The weather was great with temperatures hitting 29 degrees! However, we were busy with lots of workshops teaching my latest dances, Familiar, Celtic Duo, No Apology, Tightrope, Capital Letters and another brand new easy Intermediate called "If You Dare" to the track Dare by Gary Barlow and the cast of The Girls.

The fun loving Jamie Barnfield was with us and taught several dances including a great new Intermediate nightclub called If It's Meant to Be. I have posted a video on my public Facebook, but do check out this great dance.

Gary O'Reilly arrived later in the week and dances taught included his new Intermediate dance Vanotek Cha and our new Advanced dance Beautiful Flames that we have jointly choreographed.

Thank you to Gary, Jamie & Anja for all their hard work in making my dance holiday with Club Dance Holidays in Cyprus such a fabulous fun week. We really did have a fantastic time, with fabulous weather & great dancing.

Our party night last Friday had a theme of anything beginning with M, well done to everyone for their fabulous costumes. Also well done to all the men who took part in showtime, you were all fabulous. There are photos from this great week in my Photo Album and more on my public Facebook.

Thank you once again to the wonderful Anja, our ever present Club Dance Holidays rep for all her help during the week.

My Southport weekend went really well. Firstly, thank you to Keeley for collecting me off the Irish flight and for taking me home for a quick change before whisking me off to Southport in the evening!

I had a brilliant weekend of fun and friendship at my Home Game event in Coventry, with my great friends Dave and Pauline Baycroft. We had a special star guest this year all the way from Australia, the one and only Simon Ward! Tim Johnson, with whom I choreographed Strip That Down, also popped in on Friday evening and for the Saturday Workshop.

Our Saturday night theme was of course "Down Under"! There were so many fantastic costumes - well done everybody!

I taught Tension, Dancing In The Daylight and my new Intermediate Hearts On Fire. Simon taught Hurts Like a Cha Cha, Equal Love, Story and Friends For Life. Tim taught his latest dance Call The Doc.

Thanks to everyone for your tremendous support, especially those who travelled from Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland. Thanks as always to Gwen for her help during the event and also to Dee Musk for her help with Dave's Early Bird sessions.

Majorca 2017

We had a great time linedancing in Majorca with about 70 dancers from Austria, France, Germany, Guernsey, Switzerland and UK. The hotel, the weather, the people and everything was wonderful. We linedanced so much that it was like a bootcamp! It was lovely meeting all the people new to our dance holidays - I'm pleased you all had a great time.

Many thanks to my guest choreographer and DJ, Jamie Barnfield, who did a fabulous job entertaining us. Many thanks also to our Club Dance Holidays host Anja who looked after us so well.

During the week, I taught all my latest dances, including Wandering Hearts, OpenYour Eyes, Cards On The Table, Save Me Tonight and Strip That Down. I also taught my new Intermediate Love So Soft, to a great track by Kelly Clarkson, and my new dance that I choreographed with Gary O'Reilly called Tension. Some video clips of my new dances are published on my Videos page and Facebook.

Jamie taught his latest dances including Shadow of Your Love, Body Moves, Come On Baby, Let It Swing, Spagna and Tequila Boom Boom.

Our party night theme was "Bad Taste" and the costumes were great. Well done Gwen and Moni! Some selected photos will be published in my Photo Album and on my Facebook soon.

On behalf of Dave, Pauline and myself, thank you so much to everyone who supported my Coventry Home Game. We had a fantastic time and the atmosphere was just so lovely, we had so much fun. As you can see from the photos in my Photo Album, the fancy dress costumes were brilliant!!

Thank you also to my lovely guest choreographer Daniel Trepat. I hope you enjoyed his teaches along with my new dances too. I was overwhelmingly surprised when Daniel presented me with my Best International Dance Teacher of 2014 award from the German Star Awards. Thank you again to everyone who voted for me.

My youngest son, Padraig, aged 5, made his Irish dancing debut and danced with his brothers Sean and Gerard. Mummy was so so proud of my gorgeous boys, as was Daddy.

We will be back at the Royal Court Hotel on 25-27 November next year, with the lovely Roy Hadisubroto, who some of you have had the pleasure of meeting in Portugal earlier this year. Booking details are on the Events page.


Portugal 2015

Portugal 2015

We had a great time on my line dance holiday in Portugal with my guest choreographer Roy Hadisubroto, a world champion megastar. It was good to see familiar faces and to welcome new ones.

During the week, I taught my two brand new dances - Greater Than Me and Roads. I also taught my other recent dances - Tribal Heartbeat, Simply the One, Here's To Us, Don't Dance Alone and The Galway Gathering.

Roy taught his dances Promise, Obsesion, Angel and Party Time, which were fun to learn with some great styling. He gave us a superb Showtime demo on our Party night, which left me in quite a spin - literally!! Thanks Roy for helping to make such a fun week. One of our Norwegian dancers, Berit Johannessen, also taught us her dance Spirit.

My thanks go to Dave "The Rave" Blake our DJ, who did such a splendid job with all our dance requests and to Gwen my valued helper who, amongst other things, decorated our party night tables so well. Anja, our Club Dance Holidays tour host, did an excellent job as always looking after all our travel and hotel arrangements, which was much appreciated.
